    The “National Youth Survey” was conducted by the National Statistics Office of Georgia (GeoStat) in accordance with the Grant Agreement signed with UNICEF in July 2013, in close cooperation with the Ministry of Sports and Youth Affairs of Georgia and UNFPA. The study aims to promote identification of the basic needs and problems faced by young people in Georgia as well as promote knowledge and evidence-based youth policy development.

    The “Violence Against Children in Georgia” consists of two independent, yet thematically interrelated studies, which analyze issues of violence against children (VAC) from different angles. In total, 3,345 persons participated in the field research as respondents. The first study, entitled “Violence against Children in Georgia: National Survey on Knowledge, Attitude and Practices”, focuses on the following issues: a. the levels of knowledge found among adult Georgian population regarding VAC; b. the attitudes underlying child raising and discipline methods; and the practices of reporting and reacting to child abuse cases. The second study, entitled “Violence against Children in Georgia: Analysis of the Child Protection Referral Procedures and Recommendations to the Government”, analyzes the implementation of Child Protection Referral Procedures, established in 2010. The study revealed that current social attitudes are alarming as almost half of the Georgian population considers VAC to be acceptable. 60 percent of the population believes that using violent disciplinary measures are more effective than nonviolent ones. In addition, the research revealed that the system designed to protect children from violence needs to be advanced. The study clearly shows the flaws of the system and suggests the ways to fix them. We hope that the results and recommendations of these studies will be taken into account. UNICEF will continue to provide partnership and support in this area.
